The teacher preparation programs at Augusta University place a strong emphasis on “hands-on” experiences with professional educators in actual classroom settings. Students should expect a field experience as a part of most courses in the preparation process. Clinical and field experiences are monitored for each student to ensure that they have had the opportunity to work with diverse populations in a wide variety of educational levels and settings.

Progression & Graduation Requirements
- Due to the sensitive nature of working with children in the public schools, the Department of Public Safety at Augusta University will conduct a background review of all students at three specific points in the preparation program. The first check will be made as part of enrollment in EDUC 2110 - Investigating Critical and Contemporary Issues in Education (3 Credit Hours). Only students who present a record free of criminal and/or disciplinary activity will be allowed to enter a public school classroom. The second check will be made as part of the admission to Teacher Education process. The third check will be made as a prerequisite to entering the student teaching experience. Students who are admitted to the student teaching experience must have a record free of criminal and/or disciplinary activity.
